Chief Financial Officer
The Chief Financial Officer should have strong accounting skills, familiarity with fund accounting, and experience in the areas of contract compliance, real estate finance, business lending, and government funding sources.
MEDA’s Community Real Estate Program has rapidly expanding our preservation of small apartment buildings (20 to date) in response to keeping families in the Mission district and surrounding neighborhoods in San Francisco. We continue to acquire an average of 10 buildings per year. Most properties require a high level of rehabilitation due to deferred maintenance along with mandatory seismic retrofitting to soft-story. The Construction Manager will be responsible for managing the rehabilitation of MEDA’s Small Site Program portfolio during operations along with overall construction management support to the Community Real Estate team.
The Development Officer is part of a high-functioning nonprofit dedicated to maintaining the vibrancy, health, and prosperity of the SF Mission for the Latino community. As part of a four-person development team, the Development Officer is responsible for managing a portfolio of institutional and individual donor fundraising activities, including grant writing and reporting, producing Letters of Interest (LOIs), soliciting sponsorships, producing appeals and campaigns, and managing events.
Family Economic Success Advocate
The Family Economic Success Advocate will be responsible for working with primarily low- and moderate- income, Latino, Spanish-speaking families at El Centro Bayview and MEDA’s Plaza Adelante. The Family Economic Success Advocate will also work with El Centro Bayview and MEDA Asset Building & MPN staff to link families to the comprehensive services available through both collaborations.
Small Business Loan Officer
MEDA is seeking a qualified Small Business Loan Officer that will originate, package, and close qualified loan applications for business loans up to $100,000. Qualified candidates will have demonstrated the ability to build business relationships within Latino and immigrant communities to generate referrals and source leads that meet Adelante Fund’s lending criteria and mission. Adelante Fund’s target market includes a wide spectrum of businesses, ranging from small, informal cash-based businesses with no formal credit and limited documentation to businesses with up to $1,000,000 in sales and 10-20 employees.
